yes, tough words from these speakers. of course, fully expected and embraced by this crowd of about 3500 republican leaders from southern states. and really however you looked at it, from sarah palin, i mean, it's kind of funny because there has been lots of talk about her red meat rhetoric against president obama and his policies. some people described her speech just now as as tough as the caribou jerky her people handlied out to every single attendee here. on one hand she was saying, you know, why can't republicans be the party of no? how about the party of hell no? against obama's policies. and then you had newt gingrich last night saying, well let's be the party of yes. saying, yes, to things like more jobs through tax cuts. really, however you looked at it it was a verbal assault on president obama. one thing that stood out was the back and forth over the next couple days where palin has been harshly criticizing obama and some of her appearances, especially policies on nuclear issues with north korea and iran in the last few days.
